A visitor in the yard

We have a lot of beautiful birds in this area of the country, but the cranes are probably the most widely seen. The sandhill cranes, which are HUGE, are in our yard all of the time. Since there is a lake behind us, I think that they like to hang out there, and watch for small fish.

Today, we looked out the back window and saw a beautiful whooping crane walking along the wall that borders our back yard. He was just walking along, eating bugs off of the bougainvillea, and he didn't seem at all bothered by the fact that I was standing there taking pictures of him. They are just so beautiful, and graceful.
